THE OGLETHORPE IDEA 

The Oglethorpe idea is to forge the strongest possible link 
between the "academic" and "practical," between "human 
understanding" and "know-how," between "culture" and "pro- 
ficiency," between past and present. We are persuaded that 
there is ultimately no contradiction between the concepts rep- 
resented in each of these usually divorced pairs. The liberal 
arts are practical arts; the cultured have no quarrel with the 
truly proficient; human understanding is not in a realm by 
itself and set apart from genuine know-how; properly under- 
stood the past can instruct the present and future. 

Another way to interpret the Oglethorpe idea is to under- 
stand what is common, from a point of view of higher educa- 
tion, to the student's real needs and interests. There can be no 
basic disagreement among educators and laymen about these 
common elements. In summary they are to learn as much as 
possible about the principles, forces, and laws influencing or 
governing Nature, including human nature and human asso- 
ciations; to learn to take account of these not only for their 
own sake but for growth, guidance and direction for himself 
and others; to express his deepest individuality in the work or 
calling most appropriate to his talents; and to discover his 
proper place, role, and function in the complex relationships 
of modern living. 

Perhaps a simpler way to put this is to say that work is not 
an escape from living; living should not be an escape from 
work. Education should therefore encompass the twin aims 
of making a life and making a living. But there is more to 
education than even the happiness and progress of the indi- 
vidual. Inescapably he is part and parcel of society. He fulfills 
himself by the measure in which he contributes to the happi- 
ness and progress of his fellows. Education, as an institution 
of society, has a social obligation. It cannot neglect either the 
individual or the community without damage to both. The 
social order at its best is best for the individual; the individual 
at his best is best for society. The business of education is to 
strive for this optimum. 

What difference should an education make? There are peo- 
ple, deficient in formal schooling, who are happy and useful. 

21 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 22 

They understand and get along well with their neighbors. They 
are an influence for good in their community and earn a living 
by honest effort. Any truly educated man displays the same 
traits. The difference is in degree rather than in kind. 

Whereas it is usual for people to understand their fellows, 
how much wider should be the sympathies of the educated 
man! His contacts go beyond the living and embrace the seers 
of all the ages, who as his companions should inform his mind 
and enlarge his vision. 

With the onrush of the Atomic Age the social order becomes 
of increasing concern. Democracy is the great unfinished item 
of business on the agenda of civilization. Prejudice, ignorance, 
and cynical indifference alike are dangers to a democratic so- 
ciety. Where else than to the educated man should we look for 
that broad intelligence which is capable of the long view that 
personal advantage is irrevocably bound up with the general 
good! 

Never before have people been so alive to the necessity of 
mastering rather than being mastered by the economic forces 
at work in our world. Creative brains and individual initiative, 
tempered by a strong sense of social responsibility, are the only 
sources of payrolls compatible with a free society, an improv- 
ing living standard, and a better way of life. Where else can we 
look for this creative urge than to adequate education of quali- 
fied talent! 

We make no claim that formal education inevitably bestows 
these benefits. We insist that it can. If that be true, how may 
the mark be reached? We shall always have to remind ourselves 
as teachers that education is a diflflcult art. The pitfalls we 
would shun are hard to escape. Of all people, the teacher must 
remain the most teachable. The quest for wisdom is never- 
ending. We, too, must continually grow in order to stimulate 
growth in those who come to us to learn. We shall also have 
to remind ourselves that subjects are merely the means; the 
objects of instruction are the persons taught. We must for- 
ever be mindful that education, in order to be true to itself, 
must be a progressive experience for the learner, in which 
interest gives rise to inquiry, inquiry is pursued to mastery, 
and mastery at one point occasions new interests at others. 
The cycle is never closed, but is a spiral which always returns 



23 



THE OGLETHORPE IDEA 



upon itself at some higher level of insight. Growth in every- 
thing which is human must remain the dominant objective for 
the individual and for society. 

We therefore stand for a program of studies which makes 
sense from first to last, which hangs together, and which pro- 
motes this desired result. Not only in vocational training but 
also in the education of human personality, the materials of 
instruction must have a beginning, point in a definite direction, 
and prepare for all that ensues. We necessarily make provision 
for and give scope to diversified talents in preparation for 
careers as varied as commerce, industry, law, medicine, science, 
education, literature, the fine arts, social welfare, and govern- 
ment. But this much we all have in common: each man has to 
live with himself and all have to live with their fellows. Living 
in community, with human understanding, involves arts in 
which we all are equally concerned.

"CRANHAM," COLLEGE HOME 
OF THE PRESIDENT 



HISTORY OF OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

Oglethorpe's history dates back to 1835 when a group of 
Georgia Presbyterians, influenced by the example of Princeton 
University, secured a charter for the operation of a church- 
supported university in the academic pattern of the nineteenth 
century. Actual operations commenced in 1838 at Midway, a 
small community near Milledgeville, at that time the capital 
of the state. 

For nearly three decades after its founding, the university 
steadily grew in stature and influence. Its president during 
most of that time, Samuel K. Talmage, provided gifted leader- 
ship and, at the same time, gathered about him a faculty of 
unusual ability, at least two of whom would achieve real dis- 
tinction: James Woodrow, an uncle of Woodrow Wilson and 
the first teacher in Georgia to hold the Ph.D., and Joseph Le- 
Conte, destined to world fame for his work in the field of 
geology. 

Oglethorpe alumni went forth in those years to play roles 
of importance in various fields. Perhaps the best-known of her 
graduates was the poet Sidney Lanier, a member of the Class 
of 1860, who remarked shortly before his death that the great- 
est intellectual impulse of his life had come to him during his 
college days at Oglethorpe. 

But the life and service of the school were suddenly cut 
short in the 1860's as Oglethorpe became a casualty of war. 
Her students marched away to become Confederate soldiers; 
her endowment at length was lost in Confederate bonds; her 
buildings were converted to military use as a barracks and 
hospital. In a sense, her fate became bound up with that of 
the Lost Cause. 

After the close of the conflict an effort was made to revive 
the institution, first at Midway and then by re-location in At- 
lanta. However, the ravages of war, together with the disloca- 
tions of Reconstruction, posed obstacles too great to overcome, 
and in 1872 Oglethorpe closed its doors for a second, and 
seemingly final, time. 

But three decades later, thanks largely to the determined 
energy and vision of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, the school was 

24

revived, chartered in 1913, and moved to its present location 
on the northern edge of metropolitan Atlanta. The cornerstone 
of the first building was laid in 1 9 1 5 in a ceremony witnessed 
by members of the classes of 1860 and 1861; symbolically, 
thus, the old and the new were linked. 

From then until his resignation in 1944, President Jacobs 
became and remained the guiding spirit of the endeavor. He 
developed a number of ideas and enterprises which brought 
national, and even international, recognition to the school. 
Most notable among these were the establishment of a campus 
radio station as early as 1931, and the completion in 1940 of 
the Crypt of Civilization to preserve for posterity a cross- 
section of twentieth-century life. 

Still a new era opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1 944 
when Dr. Philip Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a 
group of faculty associates, initiated a new and exciting ap- 
proach to undergraduate education called the "Oglethorpe 
Idea." As described more fully in the preceding section, the 
new departure was founded on the conviction that education 
should encompass the twin aims of making a life and making 
a living, and that toward these ends a program of studies 
should be developed which made sense from first to last and 
which meaningfully hung together. 

The last twenty years of Oglethorpe's history have revolved 
around the central issue of finding more effective means of 
answering the challenge posed by these fundamental purposes. 
At the same time, though the College remains sympathetic 
toward all religions and encourages its students to affiliate with 
a local church or synagogue of their own choosing, all formal 
support from church bodies was discontinued. Today Ogle- 
thorpe stands as a wholly private and non-sectarian institution 
of higher learning. 

In 1965 began still another chapter in the history of the 
school. As part of its steadfast aim to become "a small col- 
lege, superlatively good," the institution formally changed its 
name from Oglethorpe University to Oglethorpe College — a 
change more precisely reflecting its nature as well as its pur- 
poses. In addition, it adopted a reorganization of its academic 
year from a system of quarters to one of three semesters, 
effective with the fall term of 1965. Under the new trimester 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 26 

system, the College operates year-round, enabling students to 
graduate in less than three calendar years if they choose to 
do so. 

The College has also developed a program of physical ex- 
pansion to keep pace with its academic growth. Construction 
of new dormitories and a new student union building is sched- 
uled for the spring of 1966. The new complex is designed 
not only to add additional space to campus facilities but also 
to blend architecturally with the existing pattern of buildings 
on the campus. 

To all of this, it may be finally added, Oglethorpe enjoys 
the great asset of location in Atlanta — one of the great met- 
ropolitan centers of the South and one of the most rapidly 
developing in the nation. A city blending the graciousness of 
the Old South with the social progress of the New, Atlanta is 
a key center of transportation for the entire Southeast, with 
excellent service by air, rail, and bus; it is also a hub of the 
modern highway system being built through the region. With 
a metropolitan population of well over a million, an ideal lo- 
cation in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and a 
temperate climate throughout the year, the city offers many 
attractions and cultural opportunities to the Oglethorpe un- 
dergraduate as a part of his whole development. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 

THE TRIMESTER SYSTEM 

In the fall of 1965 Oglethorpe instituted the trimester sys- 
tem under which the academic year is organized into three 
terms. The fall semester begins in early October and ends in 
late January; the spring semester begins in early February and 
ends in early June; the summer term, which is organized some- 
what more flexibly to meet the needs of old and new Ogle- 
thorpe students as well as those of transient and transfer stu- 
dents, begins in June and ends in September. 

THE CURRICULUM 

Under the trimester system, Oglethorpe's curriculum has 
been redesigned so that all the courses carry a credit of three 
or four semester hours each. For the full-time student, the 
normal academic load will consist of five courses for each of 
the eight terms. 

Forty courses (or their equivalents for transfer students) 
are necessary for graduation. Of these, twenty specified courses 
comprise the core or general-education program required of 
all students; they embrace the areas of English, history, for- 
eign languages, humanities, philosophy, government, eco- 
nomics, international relations, mathematics, natural sciences, 
and behavioral sciences. The remaining courses needed to 
graduate are selected by the student and the advisor, normally 
from a majors program and fields of allied interest. 

With certain variations for some programs, the student who 
enters as a freshman will ordinarily spend his first four semes- 
ters completing the core program and then, with the beginning 
of his junior year, the last four completing the requirements 
for the majors program he has selected. Presently, majors are 
offered in biology, business administration, chemistry, eco- 
nomics, education (with several specializations available to 
education majors), English, foreign languages, history, math- 
ematics, physics, political studies, pre-medicine (and also 
medical technology), psychology, and sociology. 

THE EVENING PROGRAM 

As a service to the community, Oglethorpe operates an 
evening program during each of the three semesters. A con- 

27 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 28 

siderable number of the regular courses of the College are 
given in the evening school, thereby making it possible for 
those unable to attend classes in the daytime to work toward 
a college degree. Courses offered in the evening are taught by 
either regular faculty members of Oglethorpe or by other 
qualified instructors. 

In the fall and spring semesters, classes in the evening 
program meet two nights a week, on either a Monday-Wed- 
nesday arrangement or a Tuesday-Thursday. Three class peri- 
ods are offered each night, beginning at 6:00 p. m. The 
meeting arrangement during the summer term is somewhat 
different because the term itself is shorter in duration. 

Tuition for the night school is on a per-course basis; the 
charge for each course is $98. 

Inquiries concerning the evening program and the courses 
to be offered in any given term should be addressed to the 
Registrar of Oglethorpe. 



ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE 

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION 

Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students 
from all sections of this country as well as from abroad as 
candidates for degrees. It is the policy of the Admissions 
Committee to select for admission to the College those appli- 
cants who present the strongest evidence of purpose, maturity, 
scholastic ability, and potential for the caliber of college work 
expected at Oglethorpe. In making its judgments, the Com- 
mittee considers the nature of the student's high school pro- 
gram, his grades, the recommendations of his counsellors and 
teachers, and his scores on aptitude tests. 

The candidate for admission as a freshman must present a 
satisfactory high-school program which includes as a minimum 
four units in English, three in mathematics and/ or science, 
and three in social studies (except that a fourth unit in math- 
ematics and/or science may be substituted for one in social 
studies). In addition, he must submit satisfactory scores on 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Exami- 
nation Board. (Scores of the Florida and Iowa State Tests 
will be acceptable if the applicant has taken one of these as 
a result of statewide policy; also, scores of the American 
College Testing Program may be used by those unable to 
present scores on the SAT.) 

It is to the applicant's advantage to take the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test as early as possible during his senior year in 
high school. Details concerning the program can be obtained 
from high school counsellors, or by writing the College En- 
trance Examination Board, Box 592, Princeton, N. J. 08540. 

The Oglethorpe application form contains a list of the ma- 
terials which must be submitted by the applicant. No applica- 
tion can be considered and acted upon until all the items 
indicated have been received. Applications will be considered 
in order of completion, and the applicant will be notified of 
the decision of the Committee on Admissions as soon as action 
has been taken. 

Though the exact date will vary from semester to semester, 
generally the deadline by which admissions will be closed 
will be one week prior to the beginning of each term.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

The College invites and urges those students who have taken 
the Advanced Placement examinations of the College Entrance 
Examination Board to submit their scores for possible con- 
sideration toward college credit. The general policy of Ogle- 
thorpe toward such scores is the following: academic credit will 
be given in the appropriate area to students presenting Ad- 
vanced Placement grades of 4 or 5; exemption but not credit 
will be given in the appropriate area from basic courses for 
students presenting a grade of 3; neither credit nor exemption 
will be given for grades of 1 or 2; maximum credit to be 
allowed to any student for Advanced Placement scores will 
be thirty semester hours. 

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Applicants for transfer from other recognized institutions of 
higher learning are welcomed at Oglethorpe, provided that 
they are in good standing at the institution last attended. They 
are expected to follow regular admissions procedures and 
will be notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee 
in the regular way. 

SPECIAL AND TRANSIENT STUDENTS 

In addition to regular students, a limited number of special 
and transient students will be accepted. 

Special students are defined by the College as those not 
working toward an Oglethorpe degree; they are limited to a 
maximum of five semester courses, after which they must apply 
for a change of status to that of regular student or be re- 
quested to withdraw from the College. 

Transient students may take a maximum of two semesters 
of work here, provided that they secure a letter from the dean 
of their original institution certifying that they are in good 
standing there and that the original institution will accept for 
transfer credit the academic work done by the student at 
Oglehorpe. 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE 

All correspondence concerning admissions should be ad- 
dressed to the Director of Admissions, Oglethorpe College,

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS

for obtaining assistance in financing his undergraduate educa- 
tion. These opportunities are provided under conditions which

Scholarship Fund, the National Defense Student Loan Pro- 
gram, the United Student Aid Loan Fund, the Atlas Finance 
Company Scholarship, the Una Rivers Grants-in-Aid Fund,

PRE-DENTAL AND PRE-MEDICAL 

Prospective medical students should consult a pre-medical advisor 
in planning their curriculum. They should acquaint themselves 
early with entrance requirements for medical schools by consulting 
the Association of American Medical Colleges handbook on ad- 
mission requirements. 

The minimum requirements are: General Chemistry, Organic 
Chemistry, General Biology, Physics, and two semester courses 
in English literature. Most medical schools require an understand- 
ing of mathematics at the college level and many a reading knowl- 
edge of a modern foreign language. In addition to those minimum 
requirements, some medical schools require, and others recom- 
mend, additional courses in science. 

Pre-dental or pre-medical students have several programs open 
to them. They may decide to concentrate in a science such as biol- 
ogy or chemistry. It is not necessary, however, that they major 
in a science. They may just as advantageously choose to concen- 
trate in one of the humanities or other fields, carrying the neces- 
sary science as electives. Two important factors must be con- 
sidered: the increasing importance of science in medicine and the 
growing need in medicine for men with breadth of outlook and 
understanding. In any case, the student must achieve a good rec- 
ord in his scientific studies, whether or not he has chosen some 
field of science as his major. In general, good academic perform- 
ance and strong recommendations help assure admission and suc- 
cess in medical school.

STUDENT LIFE 

ORIENTATION 

At the beginning of each semester new students will be in- 
volved in an orientation program, under the general supervi- 
sion of the Student Government. Orientation activities are 
planned toward the end of introducing the student to both 
academic and social life at Oglethorpe, thereby enabling him 
to feel at home as soon as possible. Orientation group leaders 
from among the upperclassmen serve as guides and counsel- 
lors during the period. Following orientation, the student is 
then assigned to a faculty advisor who aids him in planning his 
academic program and who seeks to assist him in other ways. 

STUDENT DISCIPLINE 

Oglethorpe College believes its students to be responsible 
young men and women and so holds restrictions to the mini- 
mum necessary to promote self-discipline and sound learning. 
Our students are justly proud of the tradition of freedom 
which characterizes their undergraduate life. 

Nevertheless, at Oglethorpe College there are certain prac- 
tices regarding personal appearance and deportment to which 
our students must adhere and which are essentials of life in 
our College community. 

We have a long tradition and practice of pride in personal 
appearance. There are few rules, but our standards are high. 
It is expected that Oglethorpe students will be dressed neatly 
and appropriately to the particular occasion at all times. We 
welcome only students who honor our tradition and practice. 
The College will assume that those who fail to do so are not 
interested in being members of the Oglethorpe community. 

In deportment, Oglethorpe expects students to understand 
that obedience to law and dignified moderation are required. 
Deviation from this standard, or any action by a student which 
brings discredit to himself and disrepute to the College, will 
be subject to stern disciplinary action, which may include 
suspension or dismissal of the student from the College. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

Undergraduate life at Oglethorpe is, in a large sense, one 
of a democratic community; student government is mainly 

89

91 STUDENT LIFE 

self-government. The Student Government, consisting of offi- 
cers elected by the student body and the presidents of the four 
classes, is the guiding and governing organization of student 
life at the College. Its main purpose is to serve the individual 
student. The time and place of Student Government meetings 
are posted at regular intervals; all students are welcome to at- 
tend and to participate in the affairs of the student government. 

At Oglethorpe the Honor System is an integral part of col- 
lege life. Students are on their honor to respect the regula- 
tions of the College and to abide by the provisions of the 
Honor Code. The Honor System is supervised by a student 
Honor Council, acting with the counsel of a faculty advisor. 

STUDENT HOUSING 

All unmarried, regular students who do not live with their 
parents are required to live in College housing facilities. 
Students wishing an exception granted to this regulation must 
submit a request in writing to the Academic Dean prior to the 
semester involved. Students under twenty-one years of age 
must include a letter from their parents giving their permission 
for the student to live outside the campus facilities. 

All dormitory students are required to purchase a meal 
ticket for use in the school cafeteria. Meals are served three 
times a day, seven days a week. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES 

The College maintains a campus infirmary, staffed by a 
registered nurse. In addition, it provides the services of a 
physician who visits the infirmary on a regular schedule. Ogle- 
thorpe also has working relations with a number of hospitals 
in the Atlanta area in the event that major medical care is 
required. As explained under the section on "Fees and Costs," 
resident students are required to subscribe to the accident and 
insurance plan of the College; day students may do so if they 
wish. 

ATHLETICS 

In addition to a well-rounded program of intramural sports, 
intercollegiate competition is carried on in soccer, basketball, 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 92 

tennis, baseball, and rifle and pistol shooting. Students with 
athletic skills are invited and urged to participate in any of 
these. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES 

Intramural Sports 

New students are required to take at least two semesters of 
physical education. In addition, a balanced and versatile pro- 
gram of intramural sports operates the year round; spirited 
competition among the students exists in touch football, ping- 
pong, basketball, softball and tennis. 

The Interactivity Committee 

A body set up to coordinate the activities of all the student 
organizations on campus and to promote social events, the 
Interactivity Committee is composed of representatives of all 
the campus organizations; its chairman is the Vice President 
of the Student Council. The following student organizations 
presently exist on campus: 

Boar's Head Fraternity: This is an honor society made up of 
junior and senior men who, as superior student representa- 
tives, are invited to join. Acting as a service organization 
when needed, it is responsible for the traditional Boar's 
Head Ceremony held each Christmas.

to new students. It contains a great variety of helpful in- 
formation designed to acquaint the student with all signifi- 
cant phases of college life at Oglethorpe. 

FINE ARTS FESTIVAL 

Oglethorpe's Fine Arts Series brings to the campus a varied 
and balanced program which stresses human enjoyment of 
artistic excellence. This variety includes music, drama, litera- 
ture, the film, and the dance, as well as the graphic arts. The 
programs are designed to acquaint the student with the range 
of the arts as well as with the individual forms. The movies, 
for example, are chosen from among those film classics which 
are not currently available in the commercial theatre, and they 
reveal not only the high points of the film art but also its range 
and variety. In dance, music, and literature, the program 
brings to the campus individuals and groups chosen from 
outstanding living artists. There is no admission charge to any 
of these programs. 

In addition to the Fine Arts Series itself, the Faculty and 
Student Fine Arts Committee offers $250 in prizes to en- 
courage the student himself to explore the arts and to reward 
student achievement in this area. For music, $100 in cash 
prizes is given annually; for poetry, $50; for short fiction, $50; 
and for painting, $50. The prize poems and short stories, and 
when possible prize paintings, are published in Prospect, the 
Oglethorpe literary magazine.

PLACEMENT SERVICE 

The College maintains a Placement Office to provide help 
to students in securing jobs during their college career. Be- 
cause of Oglethorpe's location in the suburbs of the second 
fastest-growing city in America, students can easily obtain 
part-time work. There are also some opportunities on campus 
for employment in various jobs. Another function of this 
office is to aid our students in getting positions upon gradu- 
ation. A register is kept of firms seeking our graduates, and 
every effort is made by the College to place students in areas 
and firms of their preference. 

ALUMNI 

When a student terminates his study after a minimum at- 
tendance of one semester, he is considered an alumnus of the 
College. As such, he and his fellow alumni comprise what 
is known as the National Alumni Association of Oglethorpe 
College. 

The objectives of this organization are to promote the 
interests of the College and to establish mutually beneficial 
relations between it and its alumni. 

The College maintains an alumni office to serve and to keep 
contact with all of its alumni throughout the country and the 



99 STUDENT LIFE 

world. This office sends a monthly bulletin of affairs to 
all alumni. Additionally, it keeps records and addresses of 
alumni; organizes special alumni events; arranges the annual 
Alumni Day; and performs many other services which help 
to provide a liaison between the alumni and the College. 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The College recognizes attendance at classes as the respon- 
sibility of the student. Students are held accountable for all 
work missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is de- 
termined by each instructor for his own courses. 

GRADES 

At Oglethorpe a numerical system of grading is used. The 
range of 70-100 represents passing work; any grade below 70 
is regarded as a failure (though in most instances students 
who receive between 60 and 69 in the first course of a two- 
course sequence are allowed to continue in the second course 
of the sequence). Students withdrawing from a course before 
the end of the semester are given a "W" or a "WF", depending 
upon the circumstances of the withdrawal. Students who do 
not meet all the requirements of a given course are given an 
"I" for incomplete at the end of the semester; if the require- 
ments are met during the following semester, the "I" is re- 
placed by a regular grade; if they are not met within this time, 
the grade automatically becomes an "F". 

MINIMUM ACADEMIC AVERAGE 

Though the grade of 70 is regarded as passing, the College 
beheves that students, in order to graduate, must exhibit more 
ability than that required by the lowest passing mark. There- 
fore, a student, in order to graduate from Oglethorpe, must 
compile an over-all minimum average of 78. No student will 
be allowed to graduate unless this minimum is met. 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of mini- 
mum averages has been established. Freshmen are required to 
maintain a cumulative average of at least 76 in their course 
work; sophomores of at least 77; and juniors and seniors of 
at least 78. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Minimum requirements for graduation consist of the fol- 
lowing: forty semester courses (or their equivalent for transfer 

100 



101 ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

Students) totaling at least 122 hours; a cumulative grade 
average of at least 78; at least two semesters of physical edu- 
cation (unless exempted by the Academic Dean); and the 
last four semesters to be spent as a registered student at 
Oglethorpe. 

DEGREES 

Oglethorpe offers three degrees to those meeting the neces- 
sary requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and 
Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology. Under the Bache- 
lor of Arts, majors programs are offered in the following areas: 
Business Administration, Economics, Elementary Education, 
Secondary Education (with concentrations available in Eng- 
hsh, French, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies), Eng- 
lish, French, History, Philosophy, PoHtical Studies, Psychol- 
ogy, and Sociology. 

Under the Bachelor of Science, majors programs are offered 
in the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and 
Physics. 

Under certain conditions, it is also possible for a student to 
receive a degree from Oglethorpe under "professional option." 
Through this arrangement and in accord with regulations of 
the College, the student may transfer to a recognized profes- 
sional institution — such as law school, dental school, or med- 
ical school — at the end of his junior year and then, after one 
year in the professional school, receive his degree from Ogle- 
thorpe. Students interested in this possibility should consult 
closely with their advisors to make certain that all conditions 
are met. 

PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Freshmen who fail to maintain a cumulative average of at 
least 76, sophomores of at least 77, and juniors and seniors of 
at least 78 are placed on probation for the following term. If 
during that term they do not substantially improve their 
scholastic average, they will be dismissed from the College. 

First trimester freshmen receiving grades of less than 70 in 
all subjects will be dismissed, as will students in the sopho- 
more, junior, and senior classes who fail to maintain at least 
a 70 cumulative average. 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 102 

NORMAL ACADEMIC LOAD 

A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of five 
courses each semester, giving the student generally a total of 
fifteen to seventeen semester hours each term. Regular students 
in the day classes are expected to carry a normal load and to 
pay for a full schedule of courses, unless allowed by their 
advisor to carry less and authorized by the Academic Dean 
to pay for a reduced load. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

Students who earn a minimum average of 91 or better in 
any given semester for a normal load of at least five courses 
are given the distinction of being placed on the Dean's List. 

DEGREES WITH HONORS 

Degrees with honors are awarded as follows: for a cumula- 
tive average of 90 but less than 92, the degree cum laude; for 
a cumulative average of 92 but less than 94, the degree magna 
cum laude; for a cumulative average of 94 or more, the degree 
summa cum laude.
